Shelburne Library News: We’re closed for Canada Day


Written By ROSE DOTTEN

YOUR Library will be closed Saturday, June 30th- Monday, July 2nd inclusive. We will reopen Tuesday, July 3rd @ 10am.

We hosted another Coffee, Conversations & Books event at Jelly Craft Bakery, this time  featuring Pia Wiesen. Guests enjoyed hearing the story of Pia's life and how it influenced her cooking, and ultimately her cookbook. Our next event will be in Grand Valley at Brewed Awakenings, featuring Nicola Ross, on Wednesday, July 18th at 7pm. Email info@grandvalley.org to register.

New: Archivist on the Road

Photo Books—Share the Story Behind the Photo   Tuesday, July 17th @ 2pm

Preserve more than your photographs, preserve the stories too.  Digital scrapbooking, or photo books, are the newest level of scrapbooking and are quickly becoming the best way to preserve those family photographs.  It's also a great way to share the images with family, friends or your local archives! Museum of Dufferin (formerly Dufferin County Museum) will show you how to make sure those precious images are saved, both the old ones and the new ones. Call YOUR Library at 519-925-2168 to register.

New Community Initiatives 

 Shelburne Market Bags… YOUR Library Supports Green Thinking. The “Green Thinking” reusable bags will be available outside the Library, and you can fill it with wonderful fresh produce, baking, etc., at the market. YOU can get involved by donating some fabric or a few hours to help with sewing, cutting out, or pressing a few seams; we`d love to have you become part of this community initiative. YOUR Library is the heart of the community. Call 925-2168 to join the ironing, sewing and production crew.

Poppy Garden of Remembrance @ YOUR Library... Our second community initiative has our community members knitting and crocheting poppies which will be attached to stems and provide a beautiful display of respect and remembrance for our veterans on Remembrance Day. We have the kits with patterns and yarn available at the Library  and are gathering the completed poppies to create the display. Each kit makes approximately 10 poppies. We are getting emails every day from folks in our community, and even further afield who want to contribute. Email rdotten@shelburnelibrary.ca or call us at 519-925-2168 to get involved.
